    I'm not really complaining.. just stating fact. It sucked a little.. but it's what you have to deal with when showing a car sometimes.

    My complaint is more about how I missed out on seeing people and how very few people saw my car.. but that's not really anything I can blame on anyone. Shit happens.. and the weekend was still a good one

    We might enter my wife's jetta next year, just for fun. New suspension, wheels/tires, random painted bits, and interior stuff done over this winter will make it look much better than it is now. Scored a set of smoked aero ecodes for my wife's jetta last night. Funny thing is, I traded the OEM aero setup for the badgeless single round setup that it had, then I traded that setup for a badgeless smoked aero ecode setup. Honestly I don't much car for badgeless. A trip the DIP to get an OE style grill and a black badge will fix this problem.

    Couple friends came over yesterday and started getting bored, so we went for a shoot. Both cars are filthy. The red one is my friends and he is about $500-$700 into that car, with the purchase. He just fixes stuff on it as it breaks, otherwise he just has fun with it. The front fender has some atrocious "body work" done by one of the PO's, so he sticker bombed it to cover it up. Anywho, here are my photo's. My camera is starting to suck, it's lens/body need to be professionally cleaned, I'm terrible with night shots, blah blah. I like the pics, only because we had a great time just bs'ing and hanging out.

    Any tips on shooting at night would be sweet. I'm hoping to upgrade this winter to something better.

    I'd say you did just fine shooting at night. The color & white balance looks pretty good considering your light source, exposure is pretty good, sharpness is good, etc.

    that red mk2 sure looks pretty beat

    Hah, thanks!

    That red Golf has like 700k miles on it, if I remember correctly. He is into to that car, maybe $700 with buying it. When something legitimately breaks he fixes it, then continues with the rat thing.

    A friend of mine lent me a camera with some misc lenses. I didn't bother washing the car, due to the fact that it will be just as dirty within the next couple days (lovely PNW weather ). Here are a couple shots from friday.

    The gap on the grill in this shot irks me something fierce.

    I'd never do it on my car, but I've always loved photos of mk2's with yellow inners..

    I've always loved quad rounds with yellow inners, ever since I started getting into VW's. You like the way they look, but would never use them? Why not? Just curious.
    DubSaints

    because I'm a fan of functional lighting.. I know what yellow light is good for and what it's not good for. There's no point in using yellow lights for your high beams. I'm too logical for that

    Oh? I've always been under the impression that yellow lighting provides better lighting. Wrong? My low beams are also yellow (yellow bulbs 80w low/100w high).
    DubSaints

    yellow light outputs less lumens than white light does. It's only good use (besides looking good ) is in poor weather, since the wavelength of yellow light helps your eyes see details better. This is why fog lights are often yellow.. and why headlights or highbeams are not. Using highbeams in poor weather is pointless, so they should be white for the best light output. There is an argument for using yellow light in your low beams.. this is why France required it for a while. But again.. the light output is less, so it's a pretty decent trade off for being able to see detail better in poor conditions, since more light usually also helps you see more detail

    Front brake swap today. Along with new wheel bearings in the 10.1" hubs, ball joints, tie rods, and steering rack boots. Getting an alignment tomorrow after work. Pictures:

    My Yellow low-beams went out. So now I run white 80/100 bulbs (yes, my lights are relayed ) But I do have some yellow caps on the way for my headlights

    Also fixed my broken drivers door handle and the speedo cable. Damn handles on these things are about as reliable has dollar store toys.

    The rust looks way worse than it really is. Lol. They are vented and basically brand new, besides the rust. Give it a couple days and the rust will be gone.

    Finished up the entire 10.1" Front/Rear disc conversion last weekend. No pics yet, but man it feels good to have more than adequate braking power. Well, considering what I upgraded from.

    We are moving into a bigger place with an attached garage next weekend, so updates with pics of the car in the new garage will come soon!

    half of the 'upgraded brake feel' that you're getting is probably from the fluid flush

    I'm bored and should be in bed. So, here is a before and semi-current shot:

    How it looked when I got it:

    Anytime you want to loan me some garage time I'm cool with that

    I'm trying to track down a mk3 front brake setup as well. The mk2 seems to fade really bad, has vented fronts and decent pads. I'm still on the fence of upgraded to disc in the back or just refresh my rear drums.
